Not much help, but I think you've listed 2 issues and this is
for the 2nd part (not the Live TV problem.)

If your new system has a CD/DVD and memory card reader(s)
(/dev/sd[bcd] based on your post) read on, otherwise ignore
this reply.

If you look in mythfrontend Utilities/Setup->Setup->
General->Media Monitor (7th page),

and Monitor CD/DVD (and other removable devices) is checked,

Then uncheck it and /restart/ the frontend.  See 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/7135 for details and
other workarounds.

Good luck,

Bill Meek
